Uncovering the Art of Mole Removal

At Contour Dermatology, we understand the importance of safe and effective mole removal. Our experienced team, led by Dr. Timothy Jochen, MD, utilizes advanced techniques and meticulous precision to ensure the complete and cosmetically pleasing removal of moles.

Comprehensive Mole Evaluation

Prior to any mole removal procedure, Dr. Jochen conducts a thorough examination of the mole, carefully assessing its size, shape, color, and any surrounding skin changes. This comprehensive evaluation helps determine the most appropriate removal method and ensures the best possible outcome.

Minimally Invasive Techniques for Optimal Results

We employ minimally invasive techniques to remove moles, minimizing scarring and promoting rapid healing. These techniques include:

  • Surgical Excision: For larger or deeper moles, surgical excision is performed using local anesthesia. Dr. Jochen skillfully removes the mole with precise incisions, ensuring minimal tissue disruption and optimal cosmetic results.
  • Punch Biopsy: For smaller moles, a punch biopsy is often employed. This technique involves using a circular tool to remove the mole, leaving a small, round scar that typically fades over time.

Post-Procedure Care for Seamless Healing

After mole removal, our team provides detailed instructions for proper post-procedure care to ensure optimal healing and minimize the risk of complications.

This may include:

  • Keeping the area clean and dry.
  • Applying antibiotic ointment as directed.
  • Avoiding sun exposure to the treated area.
  • Attending follow-up appointments to monitor healing progress.
